One of our favourite winter recipes is for Stovies. Quick, easy, warming, filling and more to the point cheap. So I give you
Stovies-a simple slow cooker recipe.
The joy of this recipe is you can use what you have to hand. The staples for me in this recipe are potatoes, carrots and onions. But you can add any others that you have, I often ass turnips, butternut squash, leeks, broccoli, sweet potatoes. I often add sweetcorn and peas an hour before the end of the cooking time. It is also an easy to make meal, thrown it in the slow cooker before you leave home and it is ready when you get back.
I peeled onions, carrots. butternut squash and potatoes.
I then added the chopped veg to the slow cooker, potatoes first as I feel they cook better on the bottom, added some herbs and seasoning.
Then poured over a tin of tomatoes and a tin of water.
I then layered the slice sausage on top of the vegetables, I appreciate not every where can you get slice sausage but cut up links will work in much the same way.
put the lid on and left it. An hour before serving add frozen peas and sweetcorn
I cook enough that this does more than one night, tastes even better on day two and freezes well.
